Top 10 Breaking Bad Charactersdjh101
The Top Ten
As Walter became more and more proud and greedy, Jesse started showing signs of humility and humanity. He had always felt like his family never loved him, so he became a delinquent to vent his rage. He could never achieve the things his brother could, and things didn't get any better for him when he started working with his old chemistry teacher Mr. White, who had been hit equally hard in life. - SourNote2014
He's the bomb, yo!
In my opinion the best character and one that had a greater change. From being like a money hungry "kid" that basically didn't care about anyone but himself, to a dude that stopped caring about money, and just wanted to get out of the drug dealing, meth making life.
As much as this is Walt's show, Jesse is the heart of it. I think we all live this show through Jesse's eyes.V 16 Comments
I think the transition from good to bad is extremely fascinating for anyone who watches the show. He, of course, gets to the peak of his greed and cruelty during the first half of Season 5, but at the same time, when he does the things he does, there's a part of you that understands why he does what he does, given his situation. For example, if Walt didn't let Jane die, Jesse would have overdosed on heroin and died, and Jane probably would die anyway too. He made that decision to save Jesse, and it hurt him to do that. If he didn't have Jesse kill Gale, Walt would be dead, and Jesse would probably die too. If he didn't poison Brock, not only would he die, but everyone in his family would die. He also knew exactly how much to give him in order to keep him alive. The one time that I think he went too far was when he killed Mike, because there was no reason whatsoever to do it. I was fine with the prison killings because it sort of felt like a great big victory, not just for Walt, but ...more
I would vote for someone else but I couldn't resist to give my vote to Walter because after all he is the alpha and omega of the show and really think that he totally deserve it. I was angry with him when he let Jane died that was the only thing that was almost totally wrong but he did it for the sake of the show it couldn't be season 4 and 5 if jessy get away with Jane. Then when season 5 reach Walter started to act really greedy and he really made some bad choices in order to achieve what he achieve and he totally didn't have any reason to make 80 million dollars because even 1 million was more than enough to take care of his family so greed was guiding him for sure. However in the end he paid for his sins in some way, he died alone, his son hated him, all his family hated him, he died in the end but pinkman not. Also in last episode Walter haded the chance to kill pinkman but instead he gave him the gun and he let him go also he save him from the nazi thugs, so after all he shows ...more
Walter white not only is the most developed and has the biggest arc but we also root for him even when he is organising prison massacres, poisoning kids or blowing up nursing homes. It means something when you go for a character despite the terrible crimes they commit. Jesse is great and has an amazing arc, that's why it's the best show of all time and always will be, because the ensemble cast all perform 100%. I just think Jesse is maybe the most likeable their for peoples favourite but as far as BEST goes, it can be none other.
Walter is Breaking BadV 27 Comments
I think Walter White is awesome mainly for his transition and I love Jessie, but I just have a soft spot for Mike.
He's like james bond
Mike has both a good side and an evil side. A loving grandfather for his granddaughter and also a ruthless and deadly man. This guy is awesome.
Best Grandfather ever!V 6 Comments
Legally born James Morgan McGill, Saul felt he could never get anywhere in life by doing good. Clueless to the concept of proper law practice, Jimmy decided to let it go, becoming a lawyer for criminals. He's a very fun character, morally ambiguous, yet seeming like this charming, affable person who wants what's best for everyone. Until he suggests putting a hit on Jesse, that is.
He's very lost and misguided, and that's what's so fascinating about him. - SourNote2014
Saul has always been my favorite character. He's always positive and adds some brightness and humor to what would have been a generally dark-themed show. - Dorito
He's really cheesy and kind of funny
Best T.V. character everV 6 Comments
Am I the only one whom seems to have quite a struggle to decide whether I hate Gus, or actually like him? To me he is controversial, and confusing, in a good way. He is a well-built (character wise) man, and it is surprising to see what he'll do next! (SPOILER: Like when he just BAM sliced Victor's throat) One minute I am supporting him, the next I want him dead! THAT, is a great villain.
The TWO FACED devil..
He is cool and careful.. Best of him is reflected when he loose his mind..
Even when dead he still corrected his tie.. Real badass
His calm violent nature is amazing to watch
Why Gus is villain? Walt keep making troubles and he brings wrath of gus on himselfV 6 Comments
Saddest moment of the entire series when he's shot
He's a midget. Shorter than his wife
His death was the most well acted scenes
Best DEA agent ever!V 2 Comments
Though he only appeared in a total of five episodes, Tuco was a herald towards a bigger, much darker story revealed in season 4.
He is also the show's only extroverted villain, and Raymond Cruz makes the most of it. He's frighteningly psychotic yet also a ton of fun to watch. It seemed like he was going to literally fly off the walls every time he inhaled any meth.
His family life is also implied to be very intriguing. He loves his grandma, as shown in 'Better Call Saul', and his uncle... his relationship with his uncle was a complicated one.
Though a legitimate threat, Tuco was also an entertaining one, and should he appear again in 'Better Call Saul', he's always welcome.
Tuco Salamanca is the best character in breaking bad. No comparison.!.!
Like his namesake, a minute with him can change your life. - SourNote2014
The best bodyguard ever
He is so good at waiting on the couch
Gotta love him doing Scrooge McDuck man
What would make you unhappy huell?
So much to say about Skyler. The comments against her are a double standard of gender roles.
Skyler is not the perfect wife or the perfect mother. In fact, she and Walt have several aspects in common which people accept more about Walt. Like her husband, she lies and keeps secrets. She hid the fact that she was having an affair with Ted the same time Walt was first leading his double life as a meth cook.
She has drive and initiative. She's not afraid to try dirty tricks to get her own way when she aids Walt in the money laundering operation. She is just as manipulative and dangerous as him, though not quite as physical.
She's smart, possibly smarter than him. She's definitely more logical than him, and provides a good foil to Walt's increasing paranoia and delusions of grandeur.
Despite all this, unlike Walt, she has more of a domestic role to fill. On one hand, this makes her an overbearing mother, one filling a traditional role of a wife in a television series. On the ...more
My husband's cooking meth to provide for our family. I'm pissed, so I guess I'll sleep with a guy who's embezzling money for his family.
She's strong, flawed and interesting. She's an antihero of sorts, to be viewed as a three-dimensional human being.
Skyler sucksV 4 Comments
Why isn't this guy higher up? He should be nr. 1! Like seriously. Look at him! Look how tough he is! Look at all he has to gone through and his spirit is still tough as hell! He is the one who is able to hold the family together! And he's 16! What kind of teenager manages to do that? Walter family plus almost everyone here must barely realize how lucky they are to have him! He is always kind and nurturing.
He's the most stupid character ever why do people like him he can't even walkV 1 Comment
Papa with ringbell is awesome :D
Dingdingidngindign ding ding ding
That's church, yo.
Two nuts in a ballsack, yo.
The guy should write and direct the next Star Trek movie
Say what you will about the mans morality but at least he gets it done. I'd love to see a show about the gang.
I think her character is the comic relief in the show, so funny.
How the hell is Marie in the 23th position?
Girl Power.No honestly they need better female characters like Game of Thrones. but Sky is hoottt for her age baby. thank you
She deserves to be at least top 10
She doesn't even belong here!
Should be higher on list
